French Newspaper Reprints Controversial Cartoons

"Paris, Feb. 1 2006 (VOA News) -- A French newspaper has published Danish cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed that have stirred outrage in the Muslim world. France-Soir newspaper says it is simply defending freedom of expression.

France-Soir plastered its own cartoon on its front page - spoofing not only the prophet Mohammed, but also Buddha, Jehovah and Jesus. The French newspaper wrote in a large headline, 'Yes, one has the right to make fun of God.' "
